Once Upon a Time in Brussels takes its guests on electric bicycles to discover the hidden face of a capital full of surprises. Thanks to the special winter route, the excursion is still a real pleasure even when the weather is less than cooperative!

Solving the mystery

Born in the city, Virginie knows Brussels, its anecdotes, forgotten stories and hidden treasures like the back of her hand. In June 2012, with a history degree from the Free University of Brussels in hand, the pretty brunette created a company to share her knowledge of the city with her neighbours, friends and tourists. It's impossible not to be amazed by what she knows about the city, which rivals the very best guide books, and which she shares with energy and good humour.

Winter route

A Tour de France get-up isn't required to take on Brussels on an electric bike. The little motor will make sure you don't get tired. Virginie will provide you with a yellow safety vest at the start of the tour. All you'll need otherwise are comfortable clothes against the cold and the wind. The Once Upon a Time in Brussels route is specially designed for cool temperatures and it's adapted to winter weather. The ride is a bit shorter and some of the explanations are given indoors during a toasty "coffee-pastry" break. Virginie is a real genius!
